In conjunction with Levi’s, The Hole Gallery is celebrating the legacy of famed (and now defunct) 8th Avenue poster shop PosterMat. The PosterMat exhibition, running through January 13, 2010, offers a fantastic selection of posters priced at $75 each. Artists included Aaron Bondaroff, Alison Schulnick, Andrew Jeffrey Wright, Andrew Kuo, Ara Peterson, ARE Weapons, Aurel Schmidt, Assume Vivid Astro Focus, Angeline Rivas, Alex Gartenfeld, and that is just the A’s! Barry McGee, Clare Rojas, Brad Kahlhamer, Kembra Pfahler, Bruce LaBruce, Dave Schubert, Dearrraindrop, Evan Gruzis, Gavin McInnes, Opening Ceremony, Jack Pierson, Jade Berreau, Keegan McHargue, Kunle Martins, Patrick Griffin, Maripol, Mat Brinkman, Robert Lazzarini, Shepard Fairey, Xylor Jane, Hanah Liden, Yoko Ono, and many, many more.
$75 might be more than the punk posters kids bought from PosterMat in the 80s, but it is still a decent tariff considering the available goods.
My favorite posters from PosterMat after the jump, including work from Barry McGee (above) and Clayton Patterson.
